Bye Bye New Year Resolutions


You’ve been at work for almost a month of the new year.  The holidays seem a distant memory.  You still haven’t caught up with the email backlog from the holidays.  By now you’ve decided that any idiot who generates email traffic during the holidays doesn’t deserve a response.  Your new year resolutions have already fallen by the wayside.  As you decide between getting your 15th cup of coffee or taking up smoking so you can hang out with the hot girl from accounting – here’s the Martini Mandate Best of 2014 list (as determined by you).  Thank you for reading my musings – let’s retox together in 2015!
